Before i start talking about this trip, i can honestly say that i haven’t discovered half of what’s in Lebanon.

The trip started from Beirut where we took the bus (along with everyone else who wanted to go with the “Adventures in Lebanon” group) And got to meet friendly people with an adventurous spirit. more precisely, a girl, Sophie from England or whatever, who seemed to be nice and enjoying the adventure until her latest blog on WordPress explaining how bad and uninteresting the trip was; not to mention how she described Lebanon as the country with hashish fields and extremely bad smells. As much as her description was mainly focused on the bad side of our country, nobody cared.

Long story short, our group had a blast. Rafting was an awesome experience for everyone, our boat would loose control from time to time cause we couldn’t really control it but with time we learned the techniques & got hold of it . & in the end everything went well, we were prepared for the two big waterfalls, the first one was only 2 meters but the second was 7 meters which was a little bit challenging at first, but everything went smooth & there were no injuries due to the protection gear we were obliged to wear.

Picture #1 : first waterfall (2 meters)

Picture #2 : second waterwall (7 meters)

After all, this was an indescribable journey full of fun and adventure, it taught us a lot and i would definitely recommend it to everyone. Not to mention the breath-taking views on the road trip and the beauty of Aasi River, definitely recommended for anyone who’s into photography too.

    it Was A Blast, The Group Was Wonderful Very Lovely And Friendly People
    The Trip In The River Was A Blast And My Favorite And Most Challenging Part Was When We Had To Jump In The Freezing Water 😀 I Would Defenatly Do It Again !!

    Exactly, this is no spa or a place to look pretty at, this is a place to have fun.
